    Would be interesting to know the background of the women taken in consideration for that

    I’m quite surprised Spain and Italy rank, and about U.K., USA and Ireland? I stopped watching news here in Spain for the amount of reported women killed by partners. Also, older men often ogle women here, or make hissy sounds. That’s not comfortable for women, and not very ‘advanced’.

    • I guess the news just shows what they want in some way right? But anyway I am Spanish and I see a huge gender gap but this another topic. Still a long way to go but there are many european initiatives going on.
